The Requirement

The customers had a hand built steel Donohue that he was rebuilding. He also had a recovered a set of Campagnolo hubs from an old wheel set and wanted a wheel set that would be in keeping with the frame and period of the bike. The budget for the wheelset was sub £200 for the completed wheelset.

The Solution

Mavic Open pro rims in silver were chosen, they are a well proven design and still prove very popular for hand built wheels today. The wheels were stitched 3X back and front using Sapim Race spokes in silver giving a classic look to the wheel set finished with cotton Velox rim tape.
